Conversion of existing cargo building for new commissary use.
United Airlines enlisted the services of Holt Construction Corp. as General Contractor for their renovation / conversion project located at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). The airline planned on renovating their Building 157 and converting it into a new commissary for Chelsea Food Service.
Holt carefully selected a team of experienced professionals to complete the project which included a drive-in cold storage and ventilation for food prep, loading docks for food transport and a complete fit-out that included supervising offices. The facility was located at the north end of the airport with access to major highways and Port Newark, so strategic planning and extensive collaboration was essential for the proper execution of the project. The 100,000 square foot Multi-Tenant Cargo Building consists of an expansive warehouse space with associated finished office space, as well as approximately 20,000 square feet of raw office space which is located on the second-floor mezzanine. Other noteworthy details about the project include both an aircraft and employee parking for Continental’s food service facility.
